Last week, I headed west to the little town of Hopkington for a wonderful family session with an incredible family. I met Ida and Eric, and their beautiful daughters Bronwyn and Linnea, at Sara Anne and Brendan’s wedding over two years ago, back in Seattle. They’d come out to the west coast for the wedding, and were very happy to hear that I’d since moved to Boston. I had a really tough time narrowing down a few “teasers” from their session, so it’s going to be a long post. 🙂
I wanted to capture the spirit of this loving family, both as individuals and as they naturally interact. It made for a challenging but incredibly rewarding session. We started off with some fun hula hooping:
All four play instruments – I thought it would be fun to bring the music outside …
I love the look of concentration on Bronwyn’s face as she plays her cello, and on Linnea’s as she plays the ukulele. We then grabbed some group photos (with and without their awesome doggies), and some couples photos of Eric and Ida:
The hammock was a great spot for some relaxed portraits …
Time for some individual portraits:
Eric is a professional musician and works many weddings. Let me know if you’re looking for a guitarist – he’s a wonderful player and a great guy to have around on your big day. 🙂
We ended the session with the girls playing on the monkey bars and horsey swing, and Ida with her lovely garden. I can’t thank you all enough for making it such a fun, relaxed session. I hope you enjoy your teasers as much as I enjoyed working with you all!
